Handley-smallDear UMA faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends:

I am writing you to let you know I will be leaving UMA in early September to take on an exciting new position at National University in San Diego. This was a very difficult decision for me, because I love UMA and the people who work here and go to school here. In the end, though, I have chosen to take this new opportunity for three reasons.

First, the new job at National University is one that truly excites me. As the first Executive Director of their brand new Sanford Education Center, I can have a real national impact on K-12 education, developing and implementing programs that will create inspiring new teachers at every level. I will also be developing new national programs for non-profit leaders, and I get to return to my roots at National University where I served in several leadership positions as a Dean and a Vice President for most of the 1990s.

The second reason I have decided to take the new position is to be closer to my children and grandchildren, all of whom reside in California. Living in Maine, my trips to California have been too infrequent and all too brief for someone so devoted to family. I am really looking forward to spending much more time with them.

Third and finally, I can leave UMA, knowing it is in great shape, with a tremendous leadership team in place to continue our momentum, growth and success.

Over the past six and a half years, we have accomplished so much together, including building public and private partnerships to create new programs in Architecture, Aviation and Nursing; enhancing student support through one-stop shopping and a new Enrollment Services Division; strengthening our nationally recognized support of veterans; acquiring the Gannett building that established a UMA presence in downtown Augusta; building a new state-of-the-art dental hygiene clinic on the Bangor campus; strengthening online and distance education and our relationship with University College centers; building an institutional research arm, so we could make data driven decisions; establishing an advancement and alumni office to tighten our ties with former students, while creating new revenue streams to support current students; and strengthening our relationship with the communities that surround us and building strong partnerships with business and civic leaders and legislators to strengthen economic development efforts in our region and state.

These were not my accomplishments, they were ours. Indeed, if I was going to take credit for any one accomplishment, it would be for assembling a great team that worked so well together, and made these many accomplishments happen.  That will surely continue in my absence.

I will be at UMA for about another month, so I will surely see most of you before I leave. As far as who will be taking my place on an interim basis, the Chancellor will be soliciting  input from people on campus and likely making a determination in the coming weeks.

I want to thank you all for providing me with this amazing opportunity to serve as your President. I will miss you, and regret that I will not be around to celebrate UMA’s 50th anniversary. But I know the next 50 will be just as exciting and notable, and as UMA moves forward into its next half century be assured I will be following UMA’s continued success from afar while forever carrying this special place close to my heart.

French FlagWe are looking for host families, roommates sharing an apartment, “friendship families” or “starter” families for next year

Have you considered hosting a UMA French exchange student during the 2014-2015 academic year? Families located in Augusta or the surrounding area would be ideal, as students from the University of Western Brittany will need to travel to UMA multiple times a week.

New this year: we are looking for “starter families” to help a student for up to three weeks to get settled in Augusta. This might include driving the student to the bank to set up an account, helping navigate phone service choices, and driving to see apartments to meet potential roommates. This would be a big help to the students!

Families are paid a small stipend of $250/month to cover any expenses, and students are expected to share in the cost of family meals. The French students need to have their own room.

If you are looking for a roommate, this is another possibility; the students would share in the costs of renting.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn about another culture, teach children/teenagers about other countries, and build a rich friendship.

Students arrive late August and depart early May. If you are interested but unable to host for a full year, we may be able to find two interested families who wish to host (for example, Sept.-December and January-May).

In addition, if you are not able to host but wish to help in some way, we are also looking for “friendship families” who would visit with the student each month and/or have the student come for occasional weekend visits for the first four months of the year. 

We need your help! Please don’t hesitate to write if you have any questions or wish to explore possibilities. We have short bios on each student with a photo. UN GRAND MERCI!

For more information, please contact: Chelsea Ray Associate Professor of French and Comparative Literature, UMA (best way to reach me over the summer); (207) 621-3487

Annie CollinsSecond Annual Awards Presented at the Senator Inn  Augusta – Next Step Maine, a program of the Maine Development Foundation, today recognized 21 winners of the Next Step Maine Scholarship in a presentation at the Senator Inn. This is the second year of the Next Step Maine Scholarship, a fund designed to recognize “Employees of Promise” who are nominated by their employers. The goal of the fund is to support and recognize working adults who are pursuing college degrees or certificates while also juggling jobs, families, and other responsibilities. The scholarships include seventeen $1,000 awards, two $1,500 awards, and two $500 awards.

Jennifer Laliberte“The future of Maine’s economy rests on the shoulders of people like those we are recognizing today: people pursuing college degrees and advanced training,” said Amertah Perman, Program Director for the Maine Development Foundation. “The jobs of the future, here and across the nation, will require greater levels of education, skills, and training than ever before. There are over 187,000 adults in Maine who started college but didn’t complete a degree, and with the Next Step Maine Scholarship we want to move some of these dedicated adults a little closer to that goal.”

Attendees at today’s awards reception included the scholarship winners, their employers, families and friends as well as major donors to the scholarship fund.

Employers who nominated their employees for the scholarships are members of a statewide network of 219 employers who have committed to take one more step to support education and
Melissa Kapociustraining by providing better opportunities for their employees. The Next Step Maine project is a website based resource developed to better assist adult learners in their efforts to return to school and advance their education by providing informational resources on a variety of schools and programs throughout the State. There are 15 colleges and universities collaborating on the site, which lists over 700 “adult friendly” degree programs.


Jonathan Heath“We know that employers are critical; when employers demonstrate support for skill development and higher education, employees are far more likely to take action to pursue a degree or career goal,” continued Perman. “And when they reach those goals and milestones, the employer, the individual, and the whole state benefit.”

Donors to the Next Step Maine scholarship fund and awards event include the Maine Community Foundation, Acadia Insurance, Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce, Bangor Savings Bank, Bancroft & Company, Cianbro, Doyle & Nelson, Pratt & Whitney, Reny’s, Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Maine State Council, the University of Maine System, Unum, and WEX. A volunteer committee worked with staff at the Maine Development Foundation to read and review over 76 nominations received from employers.

Lauren Perkins“We are so happy to work with the Maine Development Foundation in the effort to recognize employees who are going the extra mile,” said Deb Whitworth, President of the SHRM Maine State Council. “As human resources professionals, we know how important it is to find and develop the very best talent for Maine’s employers, and ultimately for our economy as a whole.”
